Dispensing

For innovative ideas to expand your profit potential through optical dispensing, explore the new Dispensing Solutions Pavilion, a live, interactive experience making its debut during the 2006 American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) annual meeting, Nov. 11-14 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas.

Presented by Ophthalmology Times and the American Association of Dispensing Ophthalmologists (AADO), the Dispensing Solutions Pavilion is a pioneering way for dispensing ophthalmologists and their staffs to maximize the economic possibilities offered by dispensing.

The Dispensing Solutions Pavilion is designed to enhance the skills and knowledge of ophthalmologists who either are currently dispensing or may be considering opening dispensaries.

Another significant component of the pavilion is the theater, where visitors can listen to an exclusive curriculum featuring symposia delivered by sponsor representatives and AADO faculty. Presentations will begin daily at 9:15 a.m. and continue throughout the day at 45-minute intervals.
